At Resisting Hate we have been watching (for some time) an account titled ‘DieJewDie’ on Twitter.
This account has gone through numerous incarnations posting more and more vile anti semitism and hate every day. It openly acknowledged earlier today it has been suspended four times already since the start of the day and regularly boasts about the number of accounts it has made.
The account is both organised and systematic. It uploads numerous accounts at a time in bulk and then brings them into play as each account gets suspended. It currently has a list of 29 back up accounts sitting in wait.
The account is the central figure for an informal online Neo Nazi collective who refer to their actions as ‘shitposting’ but who are involved in spreading some of the worst anti semitism we have seen on the internet. They regularly pay homage to Adolf Hitler and post deeply offensive comments and memes about the Holocaust, Jewish survivers of the Holocaust and Jewish people in general. The account also posts negative and racist comments targeting anybody of non white appearance.
This is the kind of filth it spews:
Twitter has banned the individual’s home IP address so it cannot make new accounts at home but Twitter have not banned the phrase ‘DieJewDie’ so new accounts are still being created daily.
We are asking all our members and readers of our website to send through any tweets/new accounts by this prat to our primary Twitter account @ResistingHate . We have over 500 people in our email network who are aware of this serial hater and all our Twitter members will be watching for it too. (Not hard to spot as it always uses the same name, so a quick Twitter search brings it up – and it always uses the same picture too.)
Hopefully, together we can shut this channel for antisemitic hatred down.
